The Garnett Area Community Band will play its Traditional Holiday Concert on Sunday beginning at 2 p.m. in the Auditorium at Anderson County Junior Senior High School in Garnett.
With this Concert, the band welcomes their new director, Jana Havens, and the instrumental music instructor at Anderson County. Havens received her Bachelors of Music Education from Washburn University in 2014 and comes to Garnett after teaching band and choir at Council Grove, Kan.
By presenting music in celebration of Christmas, the selections feature the brass section in “A Canadian Brass Christmas Suite,” the saxophone section in “Christmas ‘a la’ Big Band” plus “Ukrainian Bell Carol,” and songs of the season in “Sing-a-Long” favorites. Everyone will enjoy “Snowbird!” and “You’re a Mean One Mr. Grinch.”
The Garnett-area musicians will be joined by musicians from Burlington, LaCygne, Lawrence, Ottawa, Paola, Princeton, and Richmond.
The public is invited for the event and a free-will donation would be appreciated. Refreshments will be served following the concert.
